Episode 9: The Five Falkors

The crossover event of the year!

You might notice a friendly cricket during this recording. We’ve named him Garage Cricket. Gary for short. Well actually by we I mean me, and by named him I mean I made up that name right now. Look the topic at hand is The NeverEnding Story, and spoiler it’s not as good as when you watched it as a kid so maybe just don’t watch it again. Well the 2nd and 3rd for sure, not sure about the first. Rose tinted goggles and all that. The NeverEnding Story was released in 1984, 1990, and 1994.

Show-notes:


4:07 And here you can read about him rightfully regretting that decision.
9:33 This guy. Thanks for Gmork man. He looked pretty cool.
10:48 Steven Spielberg has AURYN now… also, you won’t want to miss these 13 other amazing facts doctors don’t want you to know about The Neverending Story.
11:19 My current jam.
13:50 More about the 25 people needed to make Falkor work and the other puppets in the film.
14:31 It’s in a link at the bottom.
18:27 You won’t believe the top 9 reasons why adults shouldn’t watch Neverending Story!
19:50 And if you want to know what the actors are up to now 30-something years later, you can check this out. But maybe skip over Bastian’s gnarly dreads.
29:30 Watch. Watch and be amazed.
31:31 It’s Pyornkrachzark. I wonder how much time they could’ve tacked onto the movie by saying that name instead of Rock Biter. Cause it would’ve added up.

Here are a couple other sites we got info from. They’re definitely not super old and of dubious reliability or anything.

Episode 7.5: LLGlglllgLgLGlGLl

And that’s when everyone realized we’re sponsored by LG.

This month Kiyan and Dylan make a snap decision between precisely 2 expanded universe options for the Bourne trilogy: A book, or the TV movie. Naturally they chose the TV movie because it was less time consuming. The Bourne Identity TV movie was written by Carol Sobieski and aired in 1988.


Show-notes:


1:38 Keyser Söze. They named him that just because the ö looks like a surprised face. Trust me.
4:22 The extended cut of the movie, available only on laserdisc, features Washburn more heavily and goes into detail about his brother Freezerburn.
5:33 Wombosi.
24:22 Apparently a syndrome only includes symptoms that might be related to a disease while a disease is an actual medical condition. Also apparently nobody cares and just uses disease and symptom interchangeably. Good enough for me.
27:25 Check out my new hit single, “What Does The Murloc Say?”
28:44 It was Evolution.
30:50 Nope, it came out on DVD and even blu ray.
32:16 According to the supposedly-official robert-ludlum.com, he’s named Jason Bourne because he’s “born” again after losing his memory. Other sources say he’s named after real-world amnesiac Ansel Bourne.
